Status after #Mturkgate

We have seen a moderate decrease in requests because of the increased commission structure from Amazon in July.

We want to assure everyone that the 40% commission does not apply to MturkData. Since July we have extensively tested different publishing techniques that will keep the Amazon commission at 20% instead of the 40% that Amazon wants to charge academic requesters.  Unique users are guaranteed across multiple publishings and over extended periods of time.

We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to sourcing participants and there are multiple platforms available for you to use. We do the hard work for you and will help guide you through the process to ensure that you have usable data for your research.
